  • [1] Global warming may shift the properties and dynamics of El Nino. We study the shifts in ENSO couplings in IPCC-AR4 coupled general circulation climate models. First, we compare period, pattern, amplitude and mean state of the Pacific Ocean between the current climate and a high CO2 climate. Next, shifts in ENSO couplings between sea surface temperature (SST), thermocline depth and wind stress are discussed. Although the mean state shifts, the overall ENSO properties do not change much… CONTINUE READING
